Lady Gaga got the attention both of the NFL and Pepsi after her rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner. Rumors are swirling that Gaga will headline the halftime show for Super Bowl 51 in Houston.
Billboard reported that Gaga had conversations with officials from both the NFL and Pepsi about headlining the halftime show. The show set for Feb. 5 at the NRG Stadium in Houston. A representative from NFL noted that they are very excited with the reception Gaga got to take the halftime stage but stressed that nothing is final yet.
“We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision,” an NFL rep told Billboard when asked about Gaga. “We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
It seems the NFL and Pepsi want Gaga to take the halftime show following her very successful year. Not to mention her performance at Super Bowl 50 that surely energized both the Broncos and the Panthers.
Gaga, 30, has been known with her unique way of performance and putting her at the Super Bowl halftime show would be an interesting choice. Surely, Gaga will bring out a memorable performance that football fans will never forget. This after Adele misunderstood about her being considered headlining the show.
Gaga has released a new song “Perfect Illusion,” which is her first single from her forthcoming album. The album, which has no release date yet includes collaborations with Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, Beck and Father John Misty.
Aside from Gaga, Kanye West fans have also lobbied of getting the rapper in the halftime show. Both the NFL and Pepsi stated that they are putting up a fantastic show in Houston and hoped to show the artists lined up for the proper time.
The halftime show at the Super Bowl is one of the biggest show in NFL and the most talked about also on social media. It also generates a hefty share in terms of viewership.
